It is easy to see why the Spiegel brand has been trusted for over 150 years. This sewing machine is great for a beginner or someone who just does basic sewing and gets intimidated by alot of settings.
I have never owned a sewing machine before but the manual was easy to understand. This Spiegel SP3201 model is light weight and easy to carry from place to place. It would fit down in a large tote bag to carry somewhere if needed.
Love the LED light and storage compartment. Also love the needle threader since I have never sewed before and have no clue what I am doing. The only down fall is I wish the bobbins would have come with a small amount of thread so I could have used this straight out of the box. I had to unbox it, read the manual and go to the store to get thread since I was clueless about what would be needed.
